We’re now two days into the year 2012. You’ve recovered from any New Year’s Eve indiscretions by now, your voice is back after belting out Auld Lang Syne, and you’re looking hopefully towards the future and contemplating the past.

In order to keep up with the reflections theme of the season, here are a few of my favorite posts that I've shared since joining the SciAm blog network in July.
For 2012, I'm looking forward to doing more interviews and profiles of scientists and musicians (email or tweet at me if you'd like to be interviewed), finding more interesting events and videos to share, and covering more new research on science, music, and everything in between. I've been honored with the opportunity to write for you, and I hope to do more and better things in this fresh new year.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)
Hey there! I'm a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin Madison in the Neuroscience and Public Policy program. I'm also a musician who played in two bands in North Carolina, one called Pink Flag and another called Deals. My personal passions are science, music, and cycling as transportation.
I got into science as a kid while tagging along and watching my mom do experiments in her lab. I found that while I loved science, I didn't want to be alone in an ivory tower, crunching data that few others would understand. I also noticed that many other people thought science was this scary and incomprehensible entity of obscurity. When I realized that there were people working to make science fun and accessible to everyone, I knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do. The two things I find the most immensely interesting and continually impressing are music and neuroscience, so these are the topics that I'll focus on in my blog. Philosophy and politics are my second loves, so I might pop in an occasional post on these topics as well. Ultimately I am here to share things that give me wonder. I hope that reading Science with Moxie gives you a bit of that wonder too.
